THIS INFORMATION HAS BEEN ARCHIVED FROM OUR GREENCARE SERVICE WHICH CEASED ON 31ST MAY 2018
We still train and advise on Greencare therapies and hope the service when we find a new site, under the care of Slough Mental health and recovery teams
Greencare is a therapeutic approach where contact with nature is an integral part of the process. This can include therapeutic and social horticulture, rural crafts, animal assisted interventions, care farming, woodland crafts, wilderness skills, and other ecotherapy techniques. A conceptual framework has been constructed by an EU working party.
Greencare is an essential part of an intensive therapy programme in Slough for people with complex emotional needs.
